    Coincidence? Or sign of things to come?

    Probably part of the reason Chauncey bit the dust in Detroit is because they agreed to sign Jodie Meeks for 3 years - 19 million.......overpaid and Chauncey paid the price

    Would love to see him with either the Nugs or the Buffs in a different capacity. He had a great career as a player and will kill it in his next phase of basketball.

    The Buffs could make a killing in Detroit with Chauncey on board and Dinwiddie with the Pistons.

    It was time for Chauncey to give it up. He was never coming back next year.

    Well, since it isn't about the money, it would have to be about the challenge and long term goals. Would Chauncey prefer the college experience or the pro experience. I have no clue but probably see him more in the pro game, long term. OTOH, he could work with his brother for a while.

    Either way would love to see him back in CO in some capacity - just having him in the Keg for games is a strong reminder for recruits.

    The greatest Buff ever as a local NBA exec, owner of a CO traveling team for the top local talent, attending most CU home games, and brother to our star young assistant coach... yeah, that wouldn't suck at all.

    I would think Chauncey would be a killer recruiter. Maybe the missing piece to land those vaunted top 25 guys. His name alone would get guys to at least visit.

    If Fisher played until he was 60 and Nash is still playing, our boy could do it too.

    Good article on Chauncey's options on Basketball Insider, can be found here.

    One interesting quote:

    Only if running on the court and later collecting a huge paycheck for that effort, is considered "playing"......

    I could see him in a GM like role at CU where he finds high school talent early on. Doesn't sound like he's too keen on coaching. Probably less so at CU, since his brother is on the coaching staff.

    Just Chauncey's presence at the games impresses recruits and Colorado high school kids who come to the games.

    Chauncey will be a coach at CU, but he won't be the HC

    He won't be a coach at CU anytime soon and if he does come in a long time from now as anything but the HC, it will be a Kevin Ollie-Calhoun type of situation

    Don't think it's likely he'll be an assistant coach. I could see him in charge of recruiting. Him on the coaching staff, creates some issues with Rodney imo. Plus, he's going to have the ability to get a very good coaching or front office job if he wants it.

    I'm inclined to agree that if he's on the staff at CU it'll be a recruiting type gig like you said, I should have clarified that. What issues would it create with Rodney? There could be some, but I'm not sure I agree in this case.

    I just think Rodney has kind of always been in Chauncey's shadow, and if they were both assistant coaches, believe that would continue. Either way, I don't think it seems likely that any of our assistants are leaving, so have to think if Chauncey's at CU it's in a different role

    Why would Chauncey want to be an assistant at CU?

    I don't know. I don't know Chauncey. It does seem like he would be in line for "bigger" jobs, though. But who can say what his goals for his 2nd career might be. I have heard that mentoring younger guys and being involved in his CO community are very important to him.

    So Jason Kidd and Derek Fisher go directly from the NBA straight to NBA head coaching, but you think Chauncey is going to be some college assistant coach? What is so different about his situation?

    "I've said all along that I don't really want to coach, but if I do I suppose I would rather coach HS or college."

    Has he ruled out waterboy yet?

    Thank you. There's been a lot of noise for several years of his interest in an NBA FO, particularly the Nugs. I would be surprised if, right after retirement, he relegated himself to just a recruiter/scout for us while his knowledge of the NBA is at its peak. Similarly, it's far too early in Boyle's and Rodney's career for him to come onto the bench as an assistant. It would be awkward for many.

    I don't think Chauncey goes anywhere but to an NBA club after his playing career.
